We popped in for a coffee after a long walk and our waitress (a lovely lady with blonde hair) recommended their pancakes, which came with a fruit yoghurt. I don't really have a sweet tooth but thought the pancakes were amazing - definitely the best I've ever had, really light and fluffy! The staff were very friendly and the service... More

We pop into Belinda's Bay Cafe when we get to Brittas which is fairly often. It's super for breakfast especially for the full Irish - naughty but nice! The staff are so friendly and accommodating and it's very popular with locals and visitors alike. Belinda is a great host and it's wonderful to see a local business do so well... More

I heard a lot about the pancakes and breakfast but I was very dissapointed the pancakes are stodgy more like a scone texture . The kids wanted sausage sandwiches and got 2 sausages with 2 slices of toast and it's up to you to make the sandwich and it cost over 5€ for the deconstructed sandwich which is a rip... More

We have gotten into the habit of going out for an early breakfast in the sunny South East . Well your café is top of our list especially in bad weather as the memories of the sunny days out at one of your tables linger .

We had brunch on Easter Sunday, really busy but the staff were super friendly and efficient. We had the light breakfast and the kids had pancakes - all delicious. Will definitely be back.

This is a very busy cafe with a great selection for breakfast including french toast and pancakes. Outside table available and very popular with cyclists on coastal route. I had an enjoyable breakfast of poached eggs, bacon and white pudding. My poached eggs were a bit hard which was unfortunate however friends at the table had perfectly cooked poached eggs.... More

So cheerful and friendly. A welcome oasis. Seafood chowder was as good as it gets in a top class restaurant.

Have been visiting here for nearly two years now. Not really off the beaten track but always worth a visit. Beautiful breakfasts and lunches including healthy options. Cakes a always great and coffee is by badger and dodo. This cafe is loved by locals and always busy. Definitely worth a visit.

The Bay Cafe in Brittas Bay has added a much needed heart to this area. It is populated by locals, drop ins, cyclists, golfers etc. Belinda and all her staff give an equally warm welcome to everybody. The service, food and general ambience are excellent and it is such a welcome addition to the area.
